Nice but totally out of place for Tonkin. Seems to be a 18th century colonial unit from Africa....
"The enemy? His sense of duty was no less than yours, I deem. You wonder what his name is, where he came from. And if he was really evil at heart. What lies or threats led him on this long march from home. If he would not rather have stayed there ... in peace. War will make corpses of us all."

there is also another source that should be exhaustive..those uniform booklets published by Club Francais de la Figurine Historique with, as the comment said, plenty of plates...last year i wrote them in order to buy the books (among them, in addition to the ones on Tonkin also some other good titles) but never received any answer...maybe our French friends of this forum if interested in that period/range could try to tackle those probably excellent sources:

for those able to read French i find this book in 2 parts PDF which tells in details a campaign with some good battle maps:
